Pneumocystis is a eukaryotic microbe that causes pneumocystosis, an AIDS-associated pneumonia. Pneumocystosis also occurs in many other mammalian species, and animal-derived organisms have been extensively utilized in Pneumocystis research. Pneumocystis from diverse hosts contain a large glycoprotein (gpA/MSG) on the surface. Antibodies elicited against gpA/MSG of Pneumocystis from humans sometimes cross-react with epitopes on proteins of similar size from Pneumocystis from other host species… CONTINUE READING
